About Blockchains

What is Kaia?

Kaia (ex. Klaytn), an open-source public blockchain created by South Korean internet giant Kakao, prioritizes the metaverse, gaming, and the creator economy. Tailored for the evolving on-chain landscape, Kaia underscores enterprise-grade reliability through its optimized, Byzantine Fault Tolerant (BFT)-based blockchain. Kaia's mission is to decrease the operational costs of blockchain applications, enhance accessibility for end-users, and streamline technology adoption across industries.

What is Polygon?

Polygon, formerly Matic Network, is a blockchain platform designed to establish a multi-chain system compatible with Ethereum. It employs a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism similar to Ethereum for on-chain transactions, with its native token being MATIC. Functioning as a "layer two" or "sidechain" scaling solution alongside Ethereum, Polygon facilitates quicker transactions and lower fees. Its inception aimed to tackle Ethereum's major challenges, including high fees, subpar user experience, and limited transaction throughput, aspiring to create an "Ethereum's internet of blockchains" or a multi-chain ecosystem of Ethereum-compatible blockchains.
